Easy lemon coconut mousse 25



View Profile

If you like something a little sweet but don’t want something sugar-filled, this alternative dessert could be just the ticket! Light, fruity and all natural – it’s perfect in this hot weather.

Serves 3-4 


  • 400g tin of coconut milk
  • 3 medium eggs, separated
  • 75g honey
  • Juice and zest of 2 lemons
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Chill the coconut milk in the fridge for at least 2 hours, so that the coconut cream floats to the top. You only need to use the cream.
  2. Place the egg yolks, honey, lemon zest and lemon juice in a heatproof bowl, set over a pan of simmering water and whisk constantly for about 10 minutes until the mixture thickens. Remove from the heat and chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, scoop out the chilled coconut cream from the top of the tin into a bowl and beat with a whisk or spoon until stiff.
  4. In separate clean bowl, beat the egg whites and sea salt until stiff.
  5. Fold the lemon mixture into the coconut cream, then gently fold in the egg whites.
  6. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours, then serve.

  1. Katie Horridge. Now this really does sound good. And something everyone in your household could enjoy. I’m noting it for future reference.

  2. Maybe raw sugar instead of the honey and it will hopefully fit into the dreaded fodmap diet I need.
